It’s the end of the Russian Literature Miniseries and I end it on a man and not a work. Wires got crossed, but we still talk about an interesting man, Vladimir Nabokov.

This is an article that talks about the real life story that inspired Lolita.

This is the article I talked about in the episode that’s all about Nabokov’s wife, Vera.  It’s a great read.

Part of this is behind a paywall, but this is an interview with Nabokov from 1967 and one of the things that talked me out of avoiding Lolita.  You get a sense of Nabokov’s sense of humor as well as his firm stance of not dealing with fools in this.
